HISTORIC PROPERTIES ASSOCIATES


INSPECTION OF FLAGSTAFF MONUMENT

ANDERSON CIRCLE

ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA



September 20, 1988



A report on the condition of this monument prepared by the

Associates, and dated July 23, 1988 recommended an inspection of

the flagstaff base to determine it's structural integrity. It was

felt at that time that it would require the removal of the bronze

cylinder to make that determination. As a part of the preparation

to remove the cylinder it was found that by the use of a strong

light and a mirror, a satisfactory inspection of the flagstaff

base could be achieved without removal. This was done early in

the morning of September 20, 1988.

The inspection revealed that the socket and it's supporting

masonry are in excellent condition. There was no evidence of

corrosion nor were any cracks or other deformities noted in the

supporting masonry. It appears that the socket is isolated from

the masonry by a lead collar approximately .5" wide. This would

effectively isolate the galvanized socket from the effects of the

surrounding concrete.

On the basis of this inspection, it is our considered opinion

that the flagstaff is structurally sound and that no further

testing is warranted at this time.
